What Our Students Are Saying

The core of yoga is accessibility

"The Accessible Yoga Training helped me discover that accessibility encompasses so many different dimensions -- physical, cognitive, emotional, financial, political -- and yet at the same time, the core of yoga is indeed accessibility."

-Daniel Choi, Accessible Yoga Training Online participant

It's truly for everyone

"The Accessible Yoga Training helped me discover my love of diving into and exploring yoga philosophy (and how it can be truly accessible)! It's felt a bit elusive to me, or like it was for more 'advanced, wiser' teachers, and I don't feel like that anymore. It's truly for everyone, teacher or student!"

-Sarah, Accessible Yoga Training Online participant

About the Accessible Yoga School

Accessible Yoga School was founded in the summer of 2020 by Jivana Heyman and Amber Karnes. This online school will:

  • Address gatekeeping in yoga by platforming the voices of underestimated and marginalized teachers
  • Address issues of white supremacy in yoga in all of its manifestations: racism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, fatphobia, cultural appropriation, and more
  • Provide quality education around equity issues in yoga, including practical tools from trustworthy sources to inform your teaching practice
  • Offer this education in an even more accessible format: 100% online

The Accessible Yoga School will bring you in-depth courses, mentorship programs, study groups, book clubs, and more, led by yoga educators from communities who embody and share the values of interconnectedness and liberation that are the heart of yoga’s teachings.
